Artic Afternoon Eco Experience
Drive your own husky team
A beautiful tour that begins in the light of day and ends after nightfall, where the lucky stand a chance to catch a glimpse of the breathtaking Northern Lights.
Get a chance to say hej to our beautiful dogs and learn how to handle your own team of huskies before embarking on an adventure of a lifetime. Located not far from the Ice Hotel and the beautiful Torne river, we have the perfect balance of nature and civilisation at our doorstep. Our trails are away from the mass tourist areas in the secluded Taiga forests, and it's unlikely to meet anything else apart from Reindeer, Moose & Arctic Fox.
Follow our guides across stunning frozen swamps, lakes and rivers, through the vast shimmering forests and into the wilderness that is Swedish Lapland. There will be opportunities along the way where you can stop and take photos of the dogs and surroundings and if you like, change drivers so everyone can join in on the fun.
Finish your tour by rewarding your team with some delicious raw dog treats and afterwards enjoy a warm cup of tea/coffee with a snack to warm your bones and feel free to wander around the kennel or ask our guides any questions you may have about our huskies or the sport of mushing.
